answering some of the most frequently asked questions I get about the mossberg 500 pump action shotgun. We discuss the slide action tube, accessories, tactical models, the sling stud on the magazine tube, and the ported barrels.
Easy not cheap
I have a Mossberg 500 AT. I cannot find any info on the weapon. It has two soldered brass rings on the mag tube. Any idea how old it is or where I can get more info ?
I just got one 2 days ago. I like it except the forearm is kind of loose. Does anyone have this problem? Any idea how to tighten/fix it?
You want to keep it lubed every 6 months if your letting sit.
What is the thing under the barrel ?
Jesus…do you have the mic IN your mouth?
I just got one of these and there’s a jingle inside of it. It sounds like a pick stuck in a guitar. Do you have any idea what that could be?
I’m in the UK and I made a sling stud bracket out of a 1 inch scope mount. It fits perfectly on the mag tube. I just sawed off the bottom part of the scope mount and screwed the stud into it. Mines an old 1980s 500A and it doesn’t have the hole in the takedown screw. Its blank
Can u put on scope on Mossberg 500
MCARBO now has an easy to install spring kit for the 500 trigger group bringing it down to around 3 lbs. nice upgrade .
Got Mossberg 500 why does it hold Only 3 shells
Just bought this same gun I love it.glad you showed about the sling. Didn’t come with it
Buy a shockwave or chainsaw if you want that
Hi can anyone told me if the bolt are interchangeable with 500-590-590a1? Thanks
Mossberg 500 or Winchester spx?
what’s the black thing on the chamber?
Jesus why is your mouth sound so fucking sloppy stop smaking your gd lips weird shit bro
You can just buy a replacement barrel. No need to destroy a good barrel and remove the choke. Then paint it black drop the value a little further. Now you have tactical.
Nice video. I have an older 20 gauge Mossberg 500CL. Do the newer chokes fit this older model? I need an open boring like skeet or improved cylinder. I would appreciate your advice. Thanks
My neighbor told me he got glock 9mm from a reliable seller cashmain on wickr some days ago I just got mine from him thanks bro
The mossbergs run rather well dirty, but I like to strip them completely so I can really clean them to new condition. After every 200/400 rounds, the crud that comes out of there is super nasty, if I’m not gonna shoot for a few months I usually completely clean them and store them jic I need them in a hurry. I learnt that lesson after storing a filthy 500 when a critter tried to break in my house, I ran out with the loaded 500, the critter ran I pulled the trigger click, I gave chase 20 yards rack the slide pull the trigger again click, I wasn’t too happy, the critter kept running I never seen him again.. but learned a dirty gun is a very dangerous tool… so no more. Also from now on I will strap on my .44mag and take the 500. Another jic sernerio…
Swapping the barrels on the 500 is unbelievably easy to do.
Like better then a 870!
Dude wood works the same, Why did you just not buy a 590a1, be done with it, now your spending more, thanks for the cleaning tip, lol
Fuck man u need to stop smacking ur lips in ur videos fuck
Nice video dude, thanks!
My front sling mount is on the bottom of the frame. Not the end of the mag tube
Need your helps ask for an I’d
Yes you can make the trigger much better. Mcarbo has a trigger spring kit that is excellent
The Mossberg 500 came out in 1960.
Mossberg has two different action tube lengths that I know of one was 6 3/4 and 7 and 3/8 I believe I had the same issue when going from the cheap plastic forend on my 88 to a would grip like yours I had to check and make sure the length was right before buying the tube. Luckily one of my local shops had the forend and the tube for like 40 bucks and eBay get like 50 for just the tube and no nut to hold it on
Please buy your self a tripod for filming…
I bought my 500 12 ga Tactical about 5 years ago Nice gun was meant to be a home defense and deer gun later found out you can’t hunt with a shotgun that has a capacity more than 5 rounds either in Maine or Massachusetts Doh….!
I practiced a few times with it but just beat me up so much i don’t shoot it much now. After 15 years married now two sons 7 and 11 showing interest in shooting.I went and got a Bantam model 500 in 20 gauge with the 22 inch choked smooth barrel has a 11 3/4" LOP for youth plus a 1" spacer for adults took it out to test it yesterday with #3 Buckshot What a nice shooting Gun! "light bulb went off" got a 18 1/2" security barrel cylinder bore bead sight after market heat shield, it has the syn. stock and forend like yours but the arms are pinned so there is no slide action tube either long or short on mine a 2017 also bought a 26" choked barrel for shooting clays/skeet here is my new go to gun for everything deer,HD,Birds/skeet.
What kind of upgrades can you do to this?
Yep you helped me rip mine down. I cleaned everything. But very cool. It was the first gun I ripped down and it is very easy after you do it, just take your time and have some patience.
why is mossberg 500 forend so noisy, rattles alot.
All you need to make it tactical is the 18.5 barrel. The furniture doesnt matter at all.
This 500 is available as a Field/Security Combo. 28” Field barrel with interchangeable chokes and a second Security barrel at 18.5”. The Combo is less money than buying separate.
Started making them in 1961. Nealy 60 years that they have been in production, have 2 one from the late 60s the other from about the mid 70s,,,
can you use 2 3/4 inch shells in a 3 inch chamber mossberg 500
The best way to change a nice wood forearm pump grip and stock to a tactical type is to NOT do it !! The wood is so nice looking and it’s a field gun anyway so keep it that way ! Also isn’t that gun your showing a crown grade model with the Gold trigger ? And yes you can make the trigger pull much better simply by lubing it and any competent gunsmith can loosen up the trigger pull weight SAFELY for a small fee !
I have a mossberg 500A
When i fire a round the bolt opens.
Is this normal
I was sure that the bolt should stay locked up.
To be specific. When you rack a round into the chamber it does lock the bolt into battery. It only unlocks after you fire ther round.
Yeah I had a feeding issue and it just needed oil. Great gun.
When I turn mine up and down it sounds like a rainstick ( something sliding back and forth)
It’s unloaded obviously
All my shotguns have wood stocks. There is just something special about finished wood that makes them classy. I do like the SpeedFeed polymer stock for a lightweight survival style shotgun. Great video! 🤠
Thanks, that’s good to get an over view of a gun I don’t know much about
Just bought one. Had a gunsmith cut the barrel down to 19 inches. Looks great.
